On Vacation

Starting Saturday we will be in Missouri at Stockton Lake for a fun filled (I hope) week of boating and fishing. We will be back on the Holiday weekend and I will stop by and visit then. Have a great week!

This and That

Painting in the living room is 80% done and we really like the color. Now we didn’t want blues, greens or yellows so we went with Heritage Rose which is sort of a light mauve-ish color. After living with it for awhile, we really like it and it brightens up the living room considerably. Our son came over for dinner last Sunday and his only comment was – it’s pink. No, Heritage Rose. We have to live with it and we like it so everyone else can think what they want.

Next the kitchen and we haven’t decided on a color yet so look out world, no telling what the crazy people will come up with next.

The weather has been great, every day in the 80’s and beautiful. I decided that it was time to go fishing so today I get up about 6:30am and head off for Wally World to get some odds and ends I needed for my tackle box. Then I head off for the lake which is about 15 miles away. Get there and surprise! No one in the guard shack at the entrance to the Marina area. No problemo, I go to the Marina so I can buy my yearly park permit and get some bait. Nope, closed. I drive back about 5 miles to a bait shop and get what I need but they don’t sell park permits. Drive back to the Marina area and stop at the main parks office just before the entrance to the park. No again, no one home. This is getting frustrating. Go back into the park to the self pay station. Oh hell no. Not one single day pass paper to be found. I figure at this point I’m fishing and if a game warden comes by they can cart me off because I did my best to be legal.

Beautiful morning with a light breeze, I have the place to myself so what more could I want…to catch a freaking fish would have been nice. Two hours and not one singe solitary bite. It was time to go home.

Better luck next month.

We’re Back!

Had a great time on vacation but it is great to be back home again, especially since both Hubby and I have colds and have for the last few days. This sucks even more since yesterday was our 32nd anniversary and neither of us have felt like celebrating much. We are hoping that we both feel better before the weekend is over so we can at least go out to dinner someplace nice.

We took some photos of our trip and the one day we rented a pontoon boat and went out fishing for the whole day which just happened to be the last day we were at the lake and it was overcast and 60 degrees. Figures. The days prior were lovely – sunny, not too hot with nice breezes. We spent the first part of the trip fishing from the bank which isn’t too bad except that Stockton Lake doesn’t have a lot of areas that are accessable for bank fishing.

Anyhoo, we had a great time and here are some of the pics just don’t laugh too hard :0)

We called her "Lucky Lucy" for being a 3-legged wonder dog

Lucy is a sweet natured old girl that was dumped off at the campground area and has been living at the marina area. She lost her hind leg at the knee and she gets around there okay but she is old and it is very laborious for her to get around. She slept outside our room each night and as you can see we let her in to give her fresh water and some food everyday. She is such a good dog. She doesn’t lick you she offers you her paw instead. She wouldn’t come in the room unless invited and she stole our hearts. It was so difficult to leave her there when all I wanted to do was bring her home with us and spoil her rotten for the rest of her life. All she wanted was a bit of love and attention and she was content. Leaving her there was one of the hardest things I’ve done. I am such a sucker for lost souls.

With us being back I will finish putting up the final few giveaways that I have so stay tuned and get ready to enter.
